Happy Mother´s Day!

These flowers are dedicated to my late mother.

Happy Mother´s day to all my online friends everywhere in this world. I don´t know if all the countries have the same date of Mother´s Day like what we have here in Germany. We have this day on every second Sunday of May every year.

We are very lucky as this day of the year, the sun is so bright and it is 26°C where I am in North Rhine Westphalia. It´s time to have this beautiful weather as winter was so long and too cold for me to enjoy.

Here´s a poem I am dedicating to my beloved late mother. I specially made this today for her. Remembering her when she was still alive.


Dear Nanay,
I wish you were here
Celebrating this day
In May.

I wish I could spend this day with you
Laughing with you 
Joking about everything
That come in our way.

I wish I could spend not only this day
But the days and months
When I am in your garden
Which is now my garden.

We could have talk a lot
About what kind of herbs are good
For constipation, diarrhea and stomachache
We could have talk a lot
About how I should do it right.

Nay, I miss you so much
I miss the days when I was with you.
You massaged my head while I laid down on your lap
Even though I was already old enough and a mother myself.

Nay, sorry that I was not in your last day on this earth
That didn´t mean that I did not care for you
But I was glad that I talked to you in the phone before you left us
I know you were there in our bedroom when I was there these last few years.

I am not afraid of your ghost
You can put on the radio when I am sleeping
You can even pinch my thigh as you have always done
I don´t mind as I love to know that you are always with me.

I know this is an emotional poem but that is what I feel now on Mother´s Day. Please appriciate the time with your mother. You´ll never know when it ends. Happy Mother´s Day to all.
